What did I just watch?
13 August 2013 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

So the films starts with a little bit of back story about the main characters. These are mostly uninteresting clichés (e.g. bad ass ex-cop with a past out for revenge). Also a few brief clips, news reports etc to explain the disaster all the events are tied to.

The "disgraced architect" then meets two characters which, from the get go, clearly represent good and evil. It's not mystified whatsoever. The good character is passive, blind, and talks like a nun (also has tacky eye glitter, which I think is meant to make her look angelic?) and the evil character reveals himself with some pretty mild comments about having been an angel "once upon a time" and a little poltergeist act. Doesn't take a genius to work out who he is in short time.

The main premise is that the disgraced architect has to kill 5 people designated by the evil character to get his life back. These people who he kills then come back in poor zombie make up to show him what it feels like to be them (which made me think there would be a karma type theme). The good character tries to stop him from doing these things rather gingerly and unconvincingly.

At no point in the film did I relate or feel sorry for the disgraced architect, even though it seemed he was the main character. He was given loads of chances for the viewer to like him but he turned out to be a tool. In the end he chooses the path which we are lead to believe is evil and it appears that rather than "living in darkness" he gets off Scott free and continues the evil characters legacy of killing folks by killing the evil character.

I'm sure that most of the concepts in this made sense in someone's head but it's a bit unclear on film. I felt like the characters were pieced together from 80s films. And overall it felt incomplete because the disgraced architect got away with everything with little to no sign of any consequence (which ruined the whole good and bad contrast and the karma theme).

If you're looking for something to kill time then this will just about keep your attention. Don't expect some grand philosophical works or a horror. It is neither.
